9E Phalanx - Silhouette [NTT038]
The xE Phalanx collective mind project strikes again. This time around, the combined forces of 9 iridescent minds have conceived 40 minutes of unique melodic, emotionally charged textures, cunningly derived from a vast range of self-recorded instruments. As usual, the parts flow seamlessly into eachother, co-creating a fascinating electro-acoustic experience through an awe-inspiring spectrum of curious emotions.

Silhouette by 9E Phalanx
This is some weird music and its nothing to dance to. Its the kind of music that has me thinking of suspenseful movies. Still if you want to play something while doing some not too entertaining data entry while you are playing on your own home computer then it might not be an entirely horrible pick, because at least then you could easily be about half way distracted away from the mix when the songs got too strange. I give Silhouette three stars.
